You added 6 inquiries in 1 year and that helped your scores?

Looking good!

And it's possible to have a score increase if OPs util was lowered

Re: up another 3 pts

Help me understand how adding 6 inquiries in 1 year, regardless of util shows responsible credit management.

@klondike

There are various reasons why a person decides to add cc's to their portfolio. Responsible credit management to me is being able to pay your debts on time, live within your means and app for cc's you need.

I add 5-7 a year for different purposes

0% 

Gas incentives (current 2% when my Discover isn't getting 5%)

Food incentives (current 2% Looking at two now that gives 3% or 6%)

points structures cash back and travel miles

Signup bonuses (current 41,000 + pts)

 

There's 5 different reasons and I pay no interest on any cards 

As of August CC's have paid me 300.00+ in cash back and 4 months left in the year

I have cards that I will redeem points for gift cards come December for Christmas gifts 

So if you really take a good look at it they're paying me to use their cards and next year CCC may have other cards that suit me better...
